One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"[God] tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart" (Isaiah 40:11).

The Lord took one of His sheep home this week. My friend's dad was a kind, compassionate, loving man who truly lived out his faith.

You are so blessed to have such a great family- but I'm sure you already know that. It's so nice to have warmer weather and do things like the sprinkler.
